If your dog is or appears to be (AKC-recognized) purebred but is unregistered or your
dog is a breed currently in AKC's Miscellaneous Class, you can get an ILP (Indefinite
Listing Privilege) number to do anything but conformation and field work. The procedure
for getting an ILP is as follows:
- Write to the AKC for a form or download one from the internet at www.akc.org.
- Fill out the form -- it asks what the history of the dog is, where you got it, why you
think it is pure-bred. Eg, a breeder's opinion that the dog is purebred, it was rescued
through a breed rescue club, etc.
- Take pictures as required by AKC......They list them on the form.
- Have your dog neutered. This is required for all dogs that are applying for ILPs except
for those in the Miscellaneous class. Include the veterinarian's certificate of neutering
in with the application.
- Mail the form, pictures, and certificate of neutering along with the fee.
You can write the AKC and request the appropriate forms at:
